Four “Gives Back” Finalists Move Closer to $25,000 Mobile Grant

July Fourth is the celebration of our freedom and independence in America.  Sure, we’ll go see our fireworks, light our sparklers, grill that ribeye or burger at the pool or beach, maybe hit up a local parade.

Atlantic BT has much to celebrate during this holiday.    Our Raleigh-based office, swarming with innovators and visionary leadership, is the reason we’re now a 60+ person firm, and growing.  we’ve evolved beyond a company that builds great websites, to offering expertise in  Design, User Experience, Software Development, Business & Marketing Strategy, and most recently, Mobile.  Combine our comprehensive approach with our culture and we stand out (we hope) in a good way!

Atlantic BT Celebrates Innovation

As innovators and community-minded people,  we decided to kick-off a first:   A grant contest open to any US-based nonprofit with a chance to win a $25,000 Atlantic BT grant to be used for mobile strategy, technology and marketing services.

Atlantic BT “Gives Back” Finalists Emerge

On this July 4th holiday, we’d like to celebrate with the 4 passionate nonprofits whose hard work and energy awarded them one of  the finalist spots!  41 entries, 9 semi-finalist videos  and 11, 697 voters later, we announce the nonprofits moving on for a shot at the $25,000 Mobile Grant Grand Prize:

Two finalists are Triangle-based nonprofits, Passage Home and Cornucopia Cancer Support Center , while the remaining two, Cat Adoption Team and California Coalition for Youth, hail from the west coast.

Please join us in congratulating these forward thinking organizations!

But only one nonprofit will be awarded the $25,000 Grant.  Who will it be?  It all comes down to next Thursday, July 12th, live in Raleigh or via live feed on Google+ Hangouts.

Questions & Answers

Are there differences in application architecture that are important for the cloud?
It is important to build applications and workloads specifically for the cloud. You will want to carefully consider what services the cloud provider of your choice has to offer and how your application leverages those services.
Learn More
Are there any drawbacks to cloud hosting?
Yes, there will always be some risks associated with any hosting option. You are relying on the resiliency and engineering of infrastructure that has scaled at an astounding rate.
Learn More
What’s the benefit of hosting in the cloud vs. traditional options?
Reasons not to host in the cloud are few and far between. If you don't host in the cloud, you will spend more in both CapEx and OpEx to manage your applications or websites in a traditional environment.
Learn More
How can I improve the performance of my application?
There are several primary reasons that applications perform poorly, and in some cases it’s a combination of several. 1) Data latency: If your application is making calls to a data source (whether it’s an API or a direct call) and there is latency at the data provider, your application performance will suffer.
Learn More
Should I move my application to the cloud?
The answer is ‘probably yes’. There aren’t many reasons for an application to be hosted elsewhere, aside from occasional compliance standards, or requirements to integrate with local services that would require large amounts of data to move from on-premise to cloud.
Learn More
Where should my application be hosted?
There are many different options for hosting, but most applications would do well with one of the cloud providers -- Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure.
